Here it is, the “famous” Different Songs.

This is the compilation I mentioned in the presentation text of this blog, my first (and for the time being, only) effort producing a CD compilation with Brazilian indie bands, back in 1998.
The idea was pretty simple, since no one who played in an indie band in Brazil those days had any money to release an independent album, I decided to invite some eight bands whose sound was good to me to participate in a sort of cooperative for a compilation project. So the bands handed over the recordings and the money equivalent to 1/16 of the total costs each and I paid for the other 1/2 and actually produced the album from top to toe (contacting/selecting suppliers, mastering, artwork, promotion).



The release of Different Songs was surprisingly successful, if we think about the Brazilian indie scene of the 90s.
Good reviews, interviews and articles in many fanzines, newspapers and magazines from more than ten Brazilian states, some airplay on independent radio shows across the country, at least one video clip on Brazilian MTV (Moonrise’s Youthful Song), shows in at least 4 capitals (Sao Paulo, Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro and Brasilia) and many other cities.

Before 2004, when I emigrated from Brazil, I used to work mastering audio for bands and a couple of rehearsing and recording studios in Sao Paulo. This way I could know a lot of interesting bands.
This record by Shiksa is a collection of tracks I mastered for them in 2001. As I think they never released these versions I can say this record’s pretty exclusive.

But I didn’t know Shiksa because of this mastering thing. It was Sandro, from Quadrophenia studio and many excellent bands (like Momento 68 and Continental Combo), who presented Carlos and Helena to me. Later I found out that I was studying in the same university as Alex.
Carlos, the drummer for Shiksa, and I played together with Sandro once; we were trying to adapt my individual project Walden to a band format.

I really love Shiksa, their sound’s weird and cultured, ironic, strong, jazzy and rough, all at the same time! They’re from Sao Paulo.

Out [demo-comp] by Moonrise [1996]



Moonrise . Out . OB/W96-002

1 - Percentual Moments
2 - When You Smile
3 - Sunday’s Dead
4 - (C.T.)
5 - Sunny Day/Rainy Day
6 - Nights Never End
7 - Good Inside
8 - (Est)
9 - The Boy With The Thorn In His Side

--

(Portugues)

This is the third and last demotape by Moonrise, and it’s a compilation demo.
Every one of the three different phases of the band is represented in here.

Percentual Moments and When You Smile are from what I call the second phase, with City Limits’ Paulo programming the drum machine.
The first here is an outtake from the Old Moon Whale’s session (or Don’t Be Afraid My Son’s, I can’t recall now). The second is a different version from Don’t Be Afraid My Son and Victor.

Sunday’s Dead, Sunny Day/Rainy Day and my version for The Smiths’ The Boy With The Thorn In His Side are from the so-called third phase, and that is only I playing guitar and keyboard and singing.
Gilson wrote the lyrics and sung with me on Sunday’s Dead. Sunny Day/Rainy Day was released some ten years later by a Japanese label within a compilation CD dedicated to the Brazilian indie music.

Nights Never End and Good Inside are from what I called the first and last phase, with Marco playing the acoustic drum kit. Yeah, in the beginning Moonrise was Marco (drums), Isabel (bass) and me (guitar and vocal). Then, after the second and third phases of the band, with drum machine and second guitar players (Claudio and Cal), the last incarnation of the band was again Marco, Isabel and me.
Both tracks here were taken from the first demotape, Woodland.


Yes, Moonrise’s first demotape was called Woodland and was recorded back in 1994!
From there I took the name for my tiny underground label!
:-)
The cover drawing for this demo, Out, was by Pale Sunday’s Sineval.

s/t [EP] by Walden [2001]



Walden . s/t . OB/W01-006

1 - Tarde
2 - Insone
3 - Náusea
4 - Pronto, O Escândalo
5 - Insone (bonus excerpt)
6 - This Is Just A Modern Rock Song

(Portugues)
(Italiano)

This is a transition record, my first one with songs in Portuguese, and the last one I released as Walden.
After this Walden became Zanin and I increasingly came to make more experimentalisms and mostly electronica-oriented music, at least for the next 4 years.

When I was recording these songs, my son Lauro, 5 at that time, was really curious and eager to participate in all that I was doing with those instruments, the portastudio and the computer etc. So, despite all the lyrics being totally unrelated to Lauro, he always was with me while I was recording and was important to the making of the record, both playing his toy keyboard and singing with me as drawing the cover.

My friend Neri da Rosa from Curitiba’s radio show Ultimo Volume made the graphic design.
The words I sing in Pronto, O Escandalo are an excerpt from Sartre’s The Age of Reason, even as I wrote Náusea inspired by the famous French philosopher work. The words for Tarde I wrote while working as a guard in a reformatory in Sao Vicente.
Insone was a selection/adaptation of some lines I had written some 9 years before.

This is yet older! These are probably the oldest recordings of mine to be posted here. Well, if I won’t change my mind and decide to post the really rough recordings of my earliest musical days, but firstly I’d have to find out where I left this ‘material’ anyway...
Corsage vocalist Antonio and I formed Any Wise Pub when my previous band, The Other Side, broke up. This was 1991.


The Other Side was a great – and brief – experience to me. A friend of mine, Katia, an intellectual girl who knew almost everything about almost every good band I could imagine at that time had some writings and when I read them I wrote some guitar lines and made her want to sing in a band. Then we called our mutual friends Cleber (Corsage’s drummer) and Marco for the bass (who would later play with me again with Moonrise and Magic Crayon). Well, the band lasted just for one show, opening for Garage Fuzz in Sao Vicente (seacost of the province of Sao Paulo, Brazil). We were all creative – and hard to deal with – forces and with different backgrounds and perspectives. The set-list for this only gig consisted of the few songs we’d written and two covers: Loop’s Black Sun and Sonic Youth’s Dirty Boots (with Garage Fuzz’s Alexandre “Farofa” joining us on stage). I broke my foot on that night, for the record. We never recorded anything, apart from that gig (and it’s impossible to hear anything there except noise and feedback).


Ok, Antonio and I used to go to pubs, a lot. The influences we shared at that time were mostly Velvet Underground, Stogges, MC5, punk and grunge.
He was the vocalist for Corsage, he wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Fair enough I thought.
Then we called a jazz/bossa-nova bassist and a heavy-metal drummer.
Antonio and I played the guitars and sang.
Our gigs were incendiary. AWP was the first band with which I played for a numerous audience, playing festivals, winning a contest for being in a compilation and conceding interviews.

This demotape contains the only recordings we've made. All was recorded live in the rehearsal room, except the two last tracks, proper studio versions (I can’t recall the difference between them now) of Sadness Of A Pretty Lady (that was part of our prize for the compilation thing).

The band came to an end in 1993, when I started playing the drums for the band Speed Whale, then I met Isabel and definitely started to calm down my musical tastes a little, hehe, at least for a while.
